Massachusetts Must Stand for Peace: Legislative Organizing Meeting

Sat March 27 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

Commonwealth Peace and Justice Agenda

The Massachusetts Peace and Justice Network has again partnered with progressive legislators to develop seven bills that were filed in the Mass. Legislature in January and February, the beginning of a new, two-year legislative session.  The bills address a range of issues, including nuclear weapons, the war in Yemen, Pentagon spending vs. a Moral Budget, divestment from weapons manufacturers, ethics in government, and lack of transparency.
